Richard Schmid Sayings: Somewhere within all of us is a wordless center, a part of us that hopes to be immortal in some way, a part that has remained unchanged since we were children, the source of our strength and compassion.

May each painting you do from that sacred place include an expression of gratitude for the extraordinary privilege of being an artist.
